New Normal

Our new normal is keeping the grandkids busy and not taking them anywhere. Sadly both have birthdays coming up. My granddaughter will be 3 next Wednesday. Happy April Fool's Day! And my grandson will be 1 a few weeks later.

It is difficult trying to plan a celebration and the party which is in a few weeks will likely be cancelled. My daughter did rent a bounce house for 4 days which will keep the 3 year old happy.

I am not having as much time as I would like to paint. I did create a couple of postcards and a card. Think I will send them out to friends and family back home.

The top one may not be done yet and I am not sure I love it. But, it is always good practice. 

I hope, where ever you are, you are safe and have food and supplies. This is such a new world we are living in but I am thankful to be near the grandkids during this time.

Social Distancing

During this period of social distancing, I am catching up on scrapping.

My daughter is following a tradition I started with her and her brother. Every year each child receives a dated ornament. When they married I gave them each a box of their ornaments collected over the years.

She has started this with her children. My grandson received his first ornament this year.

I was inspired by this sketch over at SketchNScrap

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words!

Friday again

Good morning!

I am glad that we are close to my daughter and those two little grandchildren during this time. While I think they are too young, ages 3 and 1, to understand all of this, my daughter has been having daily conversations with the 3 year old about the sickness, germs and washing hands. Her world has turned upside down as all of her activities - art classes, swim lessons, tumble lessons, etc. - have been cancelled. No more trips to the grocery or dollar store. Thank goodness they have a large backyard and she is happy to spend hours making mud, collecting rocks, etc. And we love to do crafts at home!

This week we accomplished a few more.

The wall in her room is getting filled with our creations! 

I did also manage to paint a few thank you cards. Only had time for quick flowers. 

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words. 

Head over to PaintpartyFriday and check out the amazing artists!  

Happy Spring!

Happy Friday the 13th

Happy Friday the 13th.

I don't know if it is where you are, but the world around here is in chaos. Events, schools and more are shutting down. Hand sanitizer and toilet paper are  no where to be found. Luckily we bought a case at Costco a few weeks ago.

Now they community I am in is closing the clubhouse for 30 days so no art group or any access to the fitness center. Guess I will be creating at home.

Trying to catch up on some scrapping.

And a few cards

Wishing each of you a safe and healthy weekend!
